How you make money
Doorvest’s approach is to make real estate investing radically simple. Real estate is the least tech-enabled asset class, yet it has a larger market capitalization than stocks and bonds combined. Their full-stack, vertically integrated model leverages technology in every stage of the investment process, so more can be done for less, and better decisions can be made for a fraction of the cost.
You can earn through the appreciation of property value and monthly rental income received. The average rental home on the Doorvest platform is $150,000 and is typically purchased with a downpayment of $30,000, which represents 20% of the purchase price. After 30 years you will have a fully paid off rental home that continues to generate passive income.
How Doorvest makes money
A monthly servicing fee is charged to handle all aspects of operating a rental home so customers are able to enjoy truly passive income. Services include but are not limited to: leasing & resident placement, monthly rent collection, resident communications and the investment dashboard. Their property management fee is based on % of the rental income. No rent = no management fee, which means that both Doorvest and the homeowner are incentivized to place long term stable residents.
Is it safe?
Owning a rental property requires work — Owning a rental property is not always easy, either. You'll need to make sure you set aside money in case of emergencies, for instance. If something breaks in the house (like a dishwasher or furnace), you as the owner are responsible for it. Rental property is highly illiquid, and it can be much easier to buy than to sell. And unlike investing in a REIT or loaning money on a real estate crowdfunding platform for a specified term, you're buying a home on Doorvest.
